Meerkat Mail

Meerkats at ZSL London Zoo posted their Christmas wishlist to Santa today (Mon 30 November), after zookeepers gifted the mob a miniature mailbox with their favourite crickets hidden inside. 
 

We're preparing to reopen this Wednesday (2 December) and are calling on the public to book tickets to visit, safe in the knowledge that the Zoo is the perfect outdoor location for a festive day out this December. 
 
Zookeeper Luke Taylor said: “All the meerkats want for Christmas is for people to visit the zoo this December – because booking a ticket will support the expert care of our 20,000 animals during this difficult time, and ZSL’s global science and conservation work. 
 
“Being closed for a combined total of 15 weeks so far this year means we’ve lost out on millions of pounds, raised by vital ticket sales, which funds our work: by celebrating Christmas at London Zoo people can enjoy a safe and fun day out while supporting ZSL’s work.”
